Remai Modern art gallery has released its new brand. The lower case “r” and “m” that now precede the words “Remai Modern” are meant to emphasize a willingness to be bold and ask questions including questions about our own identity.

The gallery also launched a new website.

“These initiatives help define our personality as a cutting-edge museum of modern art, and bring us another step closer to our opening next year,” said Gregory Burke, Remai Modern’s CEO and executive director.

The colours represent Saskatchewan’s soil and golden harvests.

“The anthracite colour denotes Saskatchewan’s soil and minerals; the yellow is for sunny days and golden harvests,” said Burke.

The visual identity was created by New York designers karlssonwilker.

A new summer program taking place Saturday’s at the Farmers’ Market was also announced. Three Seeds and a Hen’s Tooth will feature Saskatchewan artists concerned with ecology, local production and sustenance.

The art gallery is expected to open in 2017.
